Need some answers?

This page is a resource for families during the COVID-19 situation. Our family life staff is working hard to provide opportunities for growth, spiritual development, and fun for your family.

Starting this week, our family life team will be delivering devotionals and activities in little bags for each student and child. These are to help children and students (with their parent’s direction) to engage in God’s Word as we look toward Easter.

See the different icons for more information on each ministry area.

Kids and Student Quarantine Challenge

This is just a list of fun and sometimes challenging ways to help your family pass some time. Take pictures along the way and share them on social media and hashtag #livingfearless2020 so as a family of churches, we can all see what each other are up to during this time. See below for more info!

Youth Group

Just because we can’t meet in person, doesn’t mean we can’t meet! We will be doing a ZOOM video chat hangout for youth group with games, prizes, teaching, and life group time.

"Jesus is Alive!" Kids coloring book and devotional

We encourage parents to read the first few pages of the devotional. It gives great resources. Next on the table of contents, you will notice that while stories can be looked up in a regular Bible, they do follow along with the Jesus Storybook Bible (JSB). If you have this children’s Bible we would highly suggest using it. Some stories even correlate to the Bible App for Kids (a free download). Depending on how fast we were able to deliver your bag, you should be able to read one story a day and finish by April 2.

"Together" Student Devotional

We are providing this bag with a daily devotional through Easter. This workbook provides daily scripture reading and prompts to help continue your growth. 

Quarantine Challenge

Use one card a week and complete as many activities as you can. This is just a list of fun and sometimes challenging ways to help your family pass some time. Take pictures along the way and share them on social media and hashtag #livingfearless2020 so as a family of churches, we can all see what each other are up to during this time.

Weekly Bible Memory Verses

These Bible verses are here for you to memorize with your family. God’s Word is full of wonderful promises and commands that provide comfort in this uncertain time in our history. We recommend memorizing one verse a week as a way to constantly be reminded of what God is saying to you.
